ABS Drinks is the kind of place you only find in Belgium. Where else would you find a beverage store where beer entusiasts from London hunt for specialty beers from their spreadsheets while the locals get their crates of Stella and CocaCola for the weekend? High-end beer specialist and neighbourhood drink shop under one roof. Huge selection of the finest Belgian beers, very good prices, friendly atmosphere and competent staff. Definitely worth the drive from Brussels, or if you don’t have a car, there is a train station nearby.

The place to be near Leuven if you want to buy beer. Vast selection at very good prices. Staff is very helpful. Heaven is a place on earth, and it’s called ABS Drinks ...

The heaven. One of the best beer stores in Europe, especially in lambics and gueuzes. Great prices, great selection. Only Belgian beers, altough we saw some collaborations. But... you know, Belgium is a great beer country, so the shop is brutal.

Great store with an amazing selection of all kinds of brews. They have a big range of lambiek for really low prices. Lots of beers from the smaller breweries as well. I love this place.

My regular stop for Belgian beer. About 30 mins to the east of Brussels. Prices here rock, Prestige is 11 euro, Bush de Nuits 14. Great selection of over 500 different beers. Always stocks seasonals, and I have even seen growlers. Friendly service, english speaking. The warehouse is set back from the road, but there are large signs, so it’s hard to miss.

Very helpful owners (as well with the empty bottles). Somewhat chaotically stocked cases, bottles and gift ideas.

Lots of great beer (lots of variety of Struise, Alvinne, De Dolle, De Ranke, Dupont, De la Senne etc). Truly a glorious shop. Print out the travel map though, it’s a little tricky to find the first time. Definitely worth the trip if you’re in the neighbourhood.

Yesterday with DavidBles. Good selection. Beers from Struise, Alvinne, and more hard to find brewers. Nice place, good prices.

One of the best beer warehouses in Belgium. Getting used to English-speaking foreigners finding them against the odds.

Excellent Belgian beer shop, nicely displayed selection with friendly staff (with excellent English which was a help). All the usual trappist suspects and some select brews too. The value for money is also excellent.
